Wet but Wiser

palindromes A dog! A panic in a pagoda! Teenager Rex brought a can of soda; he shook it up hard and then pulled the tab. But Rex was too slow for their choc'late lab. Cain: a maniac, the brown dog's head swelled, confused by the fizz but a rat he had smelled. He was a god's dog, ergo, a ogre - mighty fine watchdog, well-trained at Kroger. Schooled in their stockroom with all kinds of nuts whose tricks won ribbons for all kinds of mutts. Cain's radar kicked in, went straight for the can and turned it on Rex who lost his game plan. On the way out, Cain offered some Kleenex. No one's the wiser, except maybe Rex. Recording the facts, Cain writes in his log, Was it a rat I saw? or Am I a dog? 6 palindromes: A dog, a panic in a pagoda Cain, a maniac god's dog ergo, a orgre radar Was it a rat I saw
